  1. What’s the best way to secure a servo in here? (I’m on the mid now while I wait my battery and other bits to come in the post)
  2. I have an old acoms servo with the end cut off , does anyone know if you can buy the plugs on their own?
  3. Got into it today a fair bit. Thats it for now until save for an ESC battery servo and receiver. Would love to stick a fresh body on here.
  4. @GTodd thanks for the advices .. I see I see!! this could well be on the radar once I get her on her feet. As for the optima it’s taking a back seat for now, got to start somewhere. Might as well be where it all started I suppose. There is a ton I need to learn.
  5. @GTodd Well sir... you are not going to believe this. I made an horrific discovery ... see photo! BRUTAL This is a second hand car I bought 30 years ago so no idea whether I did this or whether I bought it like that. Needless to say I haven’t dared to look what’s underneath, but I don’t think it’s a ‘strengthening plate’ :-) !! Painful isn’t it. Anyone got a graphite chassis for sale? BUT i did find on the media section of this website a hop up poster for the vanquish and never ever knew they released a graphite chassis for it !! I’d love to get my hands on one of those but I imagine they are the rarest of rare items?? sorry for the poor images my camera is on the blink
  6. Thanks Saito I’ll have a search to see if any of those mentioned tyres are about. I do want to stick with the stock wheels, I like them. Off topic but are people mainly from the uk on this forum ? Just curious and many people don’t add location in their profiles
  7. I’m too tight to pay 30 quid for a genuine set of tyres. After market tyre sizes are confusing me, will 2.2” tyres fit? what does that measurement refer to ? Front shocks and motor now fitted
  8. Hi All, I’m working towards getting this car up and running and have a couple of queries, can anyone help? : This clearly isn’t the original shock tower but can’t seem to find an original one, what other models might use the same part? Is this the correct motor plate that is missing from the photo https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F152681129921 Pretty sure that front bumper shouldnt be so bent. Anyone have one of these? Thanks All
  9. Hi everybody. I absolutely LOVED yesterday. A great set of people all so friendly and I can’t wait for the next meeting. Thank you so much to everyone. I could go on and on, I’m hooked, again! I’m sitting here looking at my vanquish and optima mid. They look sad and very neglected. There’s a lot to do but I want them to be up and running for the next one... I’ll be out with my begging bowl and questions throughout this forum!
  10. Thank you so much... and sorry for the repeated questions.
  11. Final last question - what the heck are shock protectors , and do I need these before I can run?
